Profile

Ernie Mayne was one of the best opening batsmen produced by Australian cricket but he had the misfortune to play in an era when the country was blessed with talent. A tall, stylish player, he excelled at the cut and the drive but was let down by being a poor fielder and this contributed to his only winning four caps.
